Dito Yuwono has special interest in the practice of collectivity. During his short residency in GOLEB, he has been trying to connect with project spaces in Amsterdam. Stimulated by series of meeting he went through during the residency; he will open his studio to host more gathering, presentation, and probably dinner parties! The open studio will be started with a Sunday brunch and presentation of Dito Yuwono’s artistic practice and his collective practice as Lir (February 5, 11am). On February 7, Dito Yuwono will present his video works and invite Mira Asriningtyas together with Lucrezia Calabrò Visconti of CLOG to share the perspectives about the practice of collectivity and the experience of running an independent art space in different local context.

Dito Yuwono (Indonesia, 1985) is an artist based in Yogyakarta. Dito’s artistic practice is varied between photography, mix-media installation, video, and performance. Dito is especially interested in working with community and recollecting memories to find the link between memory-citizen-history. His work often serves as a form of storytelling using personal approach to subtly grasp the bigger picture of socio-political environment. These issues are often brought up in every residency and projects that he does in Indonesia and abroad. The artist is now living and working in Yogyakarta. Some of his solo projects are “Have We Met?” (Lir Space – Yogyakarta, 2011), “Finding Stillness” (Artsphere – Jakarta, 2012), “The Memories of Unidentified Experience” (KKF – Yogyakarta, 2014), “Recollecting Memories: Tukang Foto Keliling” (Kaliurang – Yogyakarta, 2013 and Ruang Rupa – Jakarta, 2015), and “Geography of Here and There” (NCCA – Darwin Australia, 2016). |www.ditoyuwono.com

Lir Space is an independent space that aims to build a supportive and positive environment for young artists in Yogyakarta. Lir Space is focusing on a platform of a laboratory as alternative education for young artists, creating research-based artistic projects, and using independently-published book as an alternative space for exhibition. As an art space, Lir Space consist of two small galleries for regular exhibition program, a reading room for public and where workshops take place, and a common gathering space outside for music and other events. A small shop and a kitchen is open as a sustainability strategy to fund the space independently.

Lir is also a curatorial platform and an artist- curator collective, performed by the two founders: Mira Asriningtyas and Dito Yuwono. Lir statement as an artist-curator collective is stated as: “In the past six years since Lir was established (2011), one thing we have learned is how running a space is pretty much like curating. We select artist, creating projects, making alternative art education platforms, encouraging knowledge sharing and productions, and wrap them up in big yearly programs. At first, we are curating an art space. Then, having the freedom of being the ‘alternative’, the ‘organic’, and the ‘in-between’ provide us with opportunity to try new forms of our art practices. Having Lir as an independent form of artist-curator collective allows us to create projects with Lir’s curatorial platform in other location outside Lir Space. Some projects we made together are: “Exhibition Laboratory” (2014-now), “Video Laboratory and Exhibition” (2016), “The Observant Club” (2015-now), and “On the Table – Exhibition Series” (2016)”. ”

Lucrezia Calabrò Visconti (Italy, 1990) is an independent curator based in Turin, where she co-founded the research-driven non-profit space CLOG Projects. She is currently a participant to the curatorial programme of de Appel art centre, Amsterdam. Calabrò Visconti previously worked as artistic advisor for Artissima (Internazionale d’Arte Contemporanea) and as assistant curator for Tutttovero by Francesco Bonami and Shit and Die by Maurizio Cattelan, Myriam Ben Salah and Marta Papini. Calabrò Visconti graduated in Visual Arts at IUAV University, Venice, attended the curatorial programme CAMPO12 at Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, and pursued a curatorial internship at Artists Space, New York. She previously worked for TOILETPAPER Magazine and Le Dictateur, Milan. Calabrò Visconti studies Philosophy, writes for contemporary art journals and platforms and founded the online projects “Curatorshit”, “shitndie” and “Ketchup Drool”. Her latest exhibition is Dear Betty: Run Fast, Bite Hard! at GAMeC, Bergamo, winning project of Premio Bonaldi 2015-16.

CLOG Projects is a research-driven independent space with a focus on contemporary art and culture, autonomous education experiments and self-production projects. CLOG is located in an inhabited house in Torino and was founded by Lucrezia Calabrò Visconti and Cosimo Piga. “Clog” indicates the agglomeration of undistinguished material which causes the obstruction of the drains. The materials carried by the current settle in heterogeneous structures, whose externally anarchist logic implies their exclusion from organized channels.
